Driver Getnet Tefera, 29 of Las Vegas Injured, Children 2, and 4, Also Hurt

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (Oct. 15, 2013) – Three people including two young children were seriously injured Saturday night after a car crash in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store in the 7200 block of Arroyo Crossings, according to a press release by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

About 9:06 p.m., Getnet Tefera, 29 of Las Vegas was driving a 2012 Nissan Pathfinder with two children ages 2 and 4 years old as passengers in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart store. The driver was traveling northbound in the parking lot when they struck a planter box and a stop sign, then kept rolling into a tree, a shopping cart corral and a support column in front of the store, the report said.

The adult and two children were all seriously injured. Paramedics responding to the crash transported them all by ambulance to University Medical Center’s trauma unit where they were listed in serious condition.

The single-vehicle crash is under investigation by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s Accident Investigations Section, the report said.

“There are many factors involved in a car crash and police need to complete the investigation into this accident to determine liability,” said Attorney West Thomas. “Hopefully these three people have a complete recovery.”
